It seems that there is a banner craze going on right now. I had some triangle banner chipboard pieces from Maya Road that I wanted to work with. I was staring at them and the new paper from October Afternoon, conveniently named Fly A Kite when it hit me...this chipboard triangle could be a kite too! I took a 4 x 4" coaster and cut it in half placed it above the triangle and glued pretty paper to both sides. I embellished my kite with a name and ironically, a banner. (I made these for Teacher Appreciation week. Since I am also the PTA President, I rely heavily on the secretaries at school. I do not know what I would do without them.) I lined the whole thing with ric rac because everything is better with ric rac! The pink ric rac came from the May Ribbon Club! It is only $9 and that includes the shipping! Woot!! 15 yards of ribbon!! How can you go wrong? Then I cut a piece of jute, affixed it to the bottom, tied on some super cute gingham ribbon to the tail and Viola! A kite!! =) Cassie
